Can't remove empty master file

Question

Recently getting back into Skyrim modding with SE. My plan is to use STEP as a base and then add (or subtract) stuff on top of it.

 

After getting the latest STEP guide (0.2.0b) working, I went into SSEEdit and attempted to combine the two STEP patches into a single file. Everything was going great, but I can't remove the "STEP Skyrim SE - CR Patch.esp" file from my new ESP's master list.

 

Everything in that patch file is a duplicate in the my new file. Googling around I came across this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyxDZT49CfM which showed how to make a dummy master file to facilitate the removal process. Followed the video. Everything good. No errors. 

 

I triumphantly select my ESP and click "Clean Masters"... and the reference is still there.  :confusion:

 

I've been banging my head against the desk trying to figure out how it's even possible. I don't want my file to be dependent on an empty ESP. Anyone have ideas on what to try next?

 

(By the way, I tried removing the master with CK and it was a disaster.)

Ah! I figured it out. But the circumstances are still ... odd.

 

There is a game setting copied over from the original STEP patch file in the Game Settings section called fFastTravelSpeedMult that is overriding the Catherdal Weathers value making it 3.4 instead of 3.6

 

The odd thing is that the value has different addresses for each ESP

 

Catherdal Weathers:  fFastTravelSpeedMult [GMST:11127788]

My patch:                 fFastTravelSpeedMult [GMST:1C00AF64]

 

whereas other game settings overrides have consistent addresses for the variables they affect.

 

The mismatch looked suspicious. Sure enough when I deleted this record from my new patch file I was finally able to run "Clean Masters" and get rid of the reference to the original patch file.

 

YAY!

 

Not sure what was happening there or if it was intentional on the part of the authors? But somehow it hid a hanging reference to a master that didn't need to be there.

They're suppose to be different. The STEP Patch has created the fFastTravelSpeedMult edit from scratch using the CK so it has whatever ID the CK assigned to it.

      Greetings, 
       
      As it was stated in the title, it seems DynDOLOD is not applying modded statue of Azura (Sexy Statues Skyrim v2 NSFW Warning) when generating LODs. When I launch the game, vanilla Azura appears instead of the modded variant. The modded statue of Azura will only appear once I get close enough to it. Also, I installed a mod which resize the statue 2x its normal to make it visible all across Skyrim (Elizabeths Tower - Azura Shrine SSE).
       
      I have checked SSEEdit to see what defines the conflict and it turns out DynDOLOD.esp set the statue as persistent only and removed "is full lod" definition which was there in Elizabeth's Tower. I have very little idea of what those terms mean but my gut tells me that it has something to do with the trouble I am facing currently. Hence, is there a method to overcome this matter? 
       
      Thank you very much in advance.

      Last time I tried to clean mods with Tes4edit for Oblivion I got CTD and had to Verify the integrity of the cache after deleting the edited DLCs. I followed the guide here: 
       
      https://wiki.step-project.com/TES5Edit/TES5Edit_Cleaning_Instructions 
       
      Which was provided from here: 
       
      https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Hishutup/OblivionGuide#TES4Edit
       
      However, the latter does not use MO at all and might just have been used as a referral. Something makes me think there is some problem with Tes4edit and MO, but I just wanted to check here before I got a headache through multiple attempts. Have people here made it work just fine, how did you do it?

      First, sorry for my English.
       
      I want to merge some ESP's without renumbering FormID's. Is there any way to (semi)automatically determine, if these given ESP's have crossing FormID's? I had looked into TES5Edit scripts directory but hadn't found anything apropiate.
       
      Or maybe there is a script, which just list all FormID's from given ESP?
